Justice Chisvin given reprimand - now that's over let's all get back to work

An Ontario judge who set 10 criminal defendants free during a fit of pique was officially reprimanded Monday by the Ontario Judicial Council.

The council said it had decided to go relatively lightly on Judge Howard Chisvin of the Ontario Court because he quickly recognized the gravity of his error and had done everything he could to make amends for it.
